In Color has designed and printed the 2016 Pianos on State project. This is the sixth year of this project and the sixth year In Color has provided its services. Collaborators include the Santa Barbara New Noise Festival, Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara Education Foundation, Downtown Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara County Office of Arts and Culture, City of Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative and the Community Arts Workshop.
TheArlingtonTheatre.com is pretty much our flagship website here at In Color. This site garners well over 300k page-views per year, and it is adorned with a litany of beautiful photography from In Color principal, A. Arthur Fisher.
This website is also an example of a project whereby it's banner advertising pays for the project development and management. Although it is truly a labor of love for In Color to run, the benefits definitely outweigh the costs. That is why we are proud to announce a complete visual overhaul for this great destination.
The site now hosts some of the latest and greatest in bells and whistles, and it chugs along on a super speedy website, providing a feature-rich experience for users whether they are on desktops, laptops, tablets or mobile phones. If you haven't visited the site recently, please check it out, especially the reviews section.
To compliment the recent success of our crowd-funding project——in order to help pay for the printing costs of A. Arthur Fisher's new coffee table book, Fiesta——we have quietly gone live with a new website to promote the book.
The website, CelebrateFiesta.com follows in the footsteps of the recent go-live of HemaGlobal.com by utilizing HTML5 coding. You can see the results by visiting the site, then by scaling your browser's window. You will notice that the entire site layout will change dynamically, to fill the window without crowding. Graphics and modules will re-arrange to use whatever space is allocated. Likewise, the site will auto-configure for the size of tablets or smartphones, whether they are oriented horizontally or vertically.
CelebrateFiesta.com is currently a simple website, but eventually it will grow in scope.
On the heels of In Color's design of a logo for Ground Zero Software's product, HemaGlobal, is the go-live of the new website also designed for this product.
"HemaGlobal.com goes live as our favorite new website," says In Color principal, Art Fisher. "We have made the switch to HTML5, and this new website is a great example of that transition. We also made great use of premium photography in this website, and coupled with the HemaGlobal logo we designed, we're really happy with the results!"
Please check out the new website when you get a chance.
In Color has completed design of a new logo for long-time client Ground Zero Software, Inc. This logo is for their new company/product, called HemaGlobal, which is an Electronic Health Records (EHR) patient registry solution for Hemophilia and bleeding disorders.
Although HemaGlobal is used in medical facilities thorough the world, the product is Euro-centric, which is why the globe used in the logo is also centered around Europe. Ground Zero Software, Inc. principal, Dan Davis, is very happy with his new logo, and the website In Color is building for HemaGlobal should be ready to go live soon. Keep an eye out for a corresponding update.
Unfortunatley, the funding for my big coffee table book, Fiesta, fell through. So, I decided to take the project to the community for "crowd-funding."
I was orignially buiding out the funding project on Kickstarter.com, but I quickly discovered that they were not going to allow the flexibility I needed to work this project. The main deal-breaker was their rule preventing benefit to a non-profit, but there was also a rule preventing "bulk" sales of more than ten items in a pledge package.
I quickly found IndieGoGo.com to be a fine substitute and ported the entire site over. Now, here we are. Just a day and a half into the funing project, and I've already hit over 16% of the $20,000 goal. In reality, I'd really like to raise $30,000 to print enough books to make the project not just fasible but also viable.
Please visit http://celebratefiesta.com to learn more and to make a pledge. You'll get an amazing book in return!
In Color has designed a logo for an upcoming web portal for outrigger canoe paddlers. The website will be called Liliu.co.
The name is derrived from the world's largest long distance canoe race, called, The Queen Lili'uokalani Canoe Race. This anual race takes place in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, and it was named after the queen, daughter of King Kamehameha, the first king of the Hawaiian Islands.
Paddlers refer to this race by its nickname, Lili'u. The logo was designed by In Color principal, Art Fisher. It consists of five canoe paddles, arranged in a manner to depict a plumeria, a flower commonly used in Hawaiian leis, and one that is seen widespread througout the Hawaiian Islands.
In Color is currently producing garments, hats and stickers with the logo. They will be for sale on Liliu.co.
